Indian Premier League 2022 - Lucknow Super Giants vs Royal Challengers Bangalore - 31st Match Prediction
The race for IPL 2022 qualification is heating up, with only two points separating the top seven teams in the points table.
Both the Lucknow Super Giants and the Royal Challengers Bangalore are currently in the top three of the points table, and the winner of this match will take the lead in the race. LSG won their previous match against MI by 18 runs to record their fourth win, and they will look to build momentum with a win in this match. Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Delhi Capitals by a massive 16-run margin in their previous match and will be looking to continue their winning streak in this one as well.
Only two days ago, the Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore became the second and third teams in the standings to reach eight points. And their journeys in this IPL have been similar as well. Both began with a loss, followed by a hat-trick of victories, and then lost the next game. Now, as they prepare for the match at the DY Patil Stadium, both teams are confident of another victory as they battle to end the symmetry that has existed between them thus far.

Lucknow Super Giants vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Match Prediction
LSG has a strong batting lineup with batters capable of scoring runs consistently all the way up to No. 8 in their starting XI. RCB, too, has a strong batting line-up with good depth, but a lack of runs from their top three has been an issue in their last two matches. Except for their fifth bowler, RCB has quality pace and spin bowlers with extensive international experience. LSG has a variety of spin and pace bowling options and will be the stronger team on paper, but we expect RCB to win this match due to their experience and strong top-order batting.
Royal Challengers Bangalore is the favourite to beat Lucknow Super Giants at the odds of 1.80.
- So far, both RCB and LSG have 8 points from 6 matches.
- RCB has a 1-2 win-loss record at this venue, while LSG has won both of their previous matches here.
- KL Rahul (228 runs- LSG) and Quinton De Kock (218 runs- LSG) are currently among the top three highest run scorers in the tournament.
